Now that it has become known that the US launched a war against Iraq under false pretenses, President Bush today vowed that he will fire whoever was responsible for authorizing that war. When asked by reporters if he was aware that he himself, as president and commander-in-chief of the United States military had authorized the war, Bush responded that there was, “a serious investigation into the matter under way,” and that he wants to know “all the facts before jumping to any conclusions”. After talking with his advisors, Bush later modified his statement to say that “if anyone has committed a crime by authorizing the war in Iraq, that person will no longer work for my administration.”
